John Buscema

John Buscema (1927 – 2002) was one of the giants of comics. His work was hugely idiosyncratic, and immediately recognisable. John’s influences spanned centuries; his figures resembled familiar Renaissance sculpture, his compositions (of his frames and pages) resembled those found in contemporary cinema.

John was inventive, and innovative, but all the time respectful of the comic book form. He was truely a master, and his run on the Silver Surfer is one of the high water marks in the history of the comic form.
